The word “friend” should not be used lightly- by Ruben Merinero Sanchez

Hi to everyone, my name is Ruben and I am from Spain. I came to Baia Mare for 6 months in the project “Rural Summer Camps” and I want to share with you a small part from my experience so far.

You remember the best experiences because of the people with whom you live them.
It is very difficult for me to create a bond with other people, and in these months I have begun to believe in destiny, because I have suddenly met a group of people whom I feel the need to call FRIENDS. Every day we know each other more and more, we share more and more personal experiences, and it is incredible when you can feel so comfortable and free surrounded by so many people. This is an experience (the EVS stage) that changes life and everyone must live it in their own way, because each one matures and improves in different ways.

About Romania I have to say that I find it amazing how kind, welcoming and polite people are. Maramureș is a beautiful place to live, surrounded by very green mountains that create amazing landscapes.

I am happy with my Association, I know that they do their best to make us feel comfortable and let us improve day by day. Special thanks to Google Translator for helping me with difficult words.
